Chainmail Sleeves with Parital Chest Butted High Tensile Wire
A pair of chainmail sleeves with partial chest most appropriate for a late 14th century to 15th century armour harness. Used with plate armour mail sleeves and gussets are sewn onto an arming doublet or gambeson to protect the arm pits and arms which are not covered by plate.
The use of sleeves rather than full maille hauberks reduced the weight of armour and added to greater mobility.
Made from 9 mm 16 gauge butted high tensile wire.
